With DNSSEC Active, DNSChecker.org is showing a strange DNS record

Cheers, and thanks for your time. I’m attempting to install WordPress on my new domain - collr.me - and continually have issues, despite repeating a time-tested and oft-repeated routine of purchasing a domain name, getting it set up with my hosting, and getting Cloudflare cooking.

Despite setting everything up more than 24 hours ago, DNSChecker.org https://dnschecker.org/#A/collr.me shows DNS entries I have never seen affiliated with the domain. My current DNS settings do not contain an entry with the same A Records. https://paste.pics/890b33e177ea9d1bfda88b973b5ccf30

Googling led me to activating DNSSEC, which is something I have only today’s experience with. I still am unable to access my WordPress install, and DNSChecker.org is still showing what is evidently a Cloudflare A Record.

Any help is HUGELY appreciated and I thank you for your time.
